One of the most beautiful ballads of the post-bop era, "Naima" was written in 1959 by John Coltrane for his then-wife Juanita Naima Grubs.
Coltrane recorded it alot; first on "Giant Steps" and also on "Live! at the Village Vanguard", "The Complete Copenhagen Concert", "Afro Blue", "Impressions", and "Live at the Village Vanguard Again!".
Along with "Giant Steps", the tune has become a core jazz standard.
That's how we grow.
